How I can help
People seek counselling for many reasons, often feeling stuck, lost or overwhelmed. You may be in crisis, on edge or not feeling like your usual self. Whatever the difficulties you are facing, I am pleased you are taking this step and hope to help you in moving forward.
I am a professional counsellor and psychotherapist (MBACP) with experience of supporting clients from diverse backgrounds in working through their issues. For those who like official terminology, my way of working is largely informed by the Person-Centred Approach to counselling and psychotherapy. This means that I am not here to analyse you or direct you, but to support you in finding your own answers. In my experience, this leads to more sustainable change and empowerment.
As your counsellor, I would treat you with respect and honesty, providing a safe and confidential environment for you to reflect on your difficulties. I would not judge you or lead you, but offer my warm understanding and let your individual needs guide our work.
Through exploring your thoughts and feelings together, you would gain a deeper understanding of their meaning to you and of how they impact upon you. This process can enable you to uncover new ways of responding to your difficulties which are aligned with your needs and take you in the direction you want to go.
Through my work at charities and private practice, I have supported people with a wide range of problems and mental health issues, including:
- Relationship issues
- Family issues
- Feeling sad
- Bereavement and loss
- LGBT+ issues
- Experiences of abuse
- HIV, chronic illness and physical disability
I believe that we are all capable of creating fulfilling and enriching lives for ourselves. When we are struggling, counselling can help us connect to our inner resources and offer a valuable opportunity for change and personal growth.
I provide short term and open-ended therapy, with 50 minute sessions on a weekly basis. As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I follow professional and ethical guidelines to offer you a safe therapeutic environment.
Contact me now and we can have a chat about working together. You can ask any questions you have and we can then schedule a first session if you want to go forward.
In our first session we can go over what has brought you to counselling and what you would like to get out of it. You will be able to ask me anything you like to help you decide whether you want to go forward with me.
